Fox News is in a jam this week as major automakers and smaller outfits pull their ads from the network's popular "O'Reilly Factor" show, following a series of sexual harassment claims against host Bill O'Reilly.
BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Hyundai, and Mitsubishi all yanked their ads after a New York Times investigation that surfaced five sexual harassment cases against the political pundit.
They were joined Tuesday by pharmaceutical maker GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi Consumer Care, insurer Allstate, and asset management firm T. Rowe Price.
Untuckit, a men's clothing line, and Constant Contact, an email marketer, and Ainsworth Pet Nutrition, the parent company of the Rachel Ray-endorsed dog food brand Nutrish, also announced they were pulling ads.
In total, 11 advertisers have so far withdrawn support.
Gee Bill remember the good old days, when you could sexually assault women all day long and companies would still clamor to buy ad time for your show?
Could not happen to a more deserving asshole.
Update: Politico is now reporting that there are 15 companies that have pulled advertising.
